Video of The Seasons Project excerpts

Here's to hoping you've had terrific holidays, and sending you best wishes to kick off 2010!

As 2009 draws to a close, we reflect on how much we've enjoyed creating dances together this year, and how thankful we are for your continued support. We'd like to share this excerpt from our recent showing of The Seasons Project, the dance that began with our seasonal improvisations in New York City parks throughout 2009.

Your tax-deductable donations keep us dancing.

Visit VIA's website for more information on the company.

Saturday December 12, 4:30-5:30 @ DNA...free!

We're in the studio creating a performance work from our park studies (sights, smells, sounds, impressions....), and working with collaborator Jim Briggs III on an original score from the sounds recorded in each park the day of our improvs. We're also excited to share the other pieces we've been developing this fall.

Saturday December 12
4:30-5:30 pm
Dance New Amsterdam in the Theater



Afterward we'd love for you to join as we grab a cup of hot cocoa or a drink at a cafe nearby before continuing on to any other holiday festivities.
We plan to head back to DNA that evening for our friend Aynsley's
show at 8, and would love for you to make a night of it with us.

This Sunday in City Hall Park

Hello New York Friends!

I hope you can make it to City Hall Park this Sunday at 4 p.m. for our third seasonal improvisation. You are welcome to stop by to watch, stay as long (or as short) as you like, and even join in if the mood strikes. Jim and Mark will be recording the sounds of the day, and we'll also be filming the event for future reference in the studio. Soon we'll be putting this whole thing together! Save the date: Dec. 12. We'll be showing our first three sections and other new works for the first time. And, whether or not you can make it on Sunday, we'd love to read your comments here...
Cheers, and Happy Fall!
